|Almost ready to bloom (Dec. 28)|
|The first bud is beginning to open|
I don't think I've talked about what makes them happy. The following information came from
Camellia Forest Nursery in Chapel Hill, NC. They grow and sell the most varieties I have found in the US. Remember, I live in zone 6B and the ones I have are the winter hardy varieties. I recommend these folks if you want to purchase a Camellia for your own yard.
